Katowice/Munich, 20 May 2021. Our daughter company INTER CARGO Sp. z o.o., have signed leasing agreement for TRAXX locomotives with the company RAILPOOL. Contract covers lease of two locomotives and full-service maintenance thereof. TRAXX BR 186 locomotives will be used for domestic transport in Poland.
"We are pleased to welcome Inter Cargo as our new customer.
